When a Cloud Isn’t a Crowd, by Daniel Brown

Pastor Daniel Brown talks about being led by God in contrast to the persistent nagging to follow the crowd. Where God leads isn’t the same for everyone.

Praying For the Sick

Praying For the Sick

I’m not sure why this topic makes me nervous, but it does. Maybe it sounds a little too man-centered. Maybe it doesn’t sound spiritual.
